“I love playing at home. Like, I absolutely love our fans and we play a little bit better in front of our group. I am just happy to showcase what we are doing at home because we have been such great road warriors, so I cant wait for a treat to show what we can do at home in front of a high-ranked team,” said UNM Hockey Head Coach Grant Harvey.
UNM will play 6 of their final 8 games at home, and up first is 9th ranked Air Force on Friday. “They are looking for payback we beat them at the cadet center, I think our 3rd and 4th game of the year. They are a fantastic team, they have so many goal scorers, they have the most prolific goal scorer in the league. He is number one and our Jared Ronquillo is number two. It’s a match-up with high-powered offenses,” said Harvey.
UNM will play Air Force on Friday and Saturday at the Albuquerque Ice Post Ice Arenas and both games will start at 8 p.m.
